Who exactly is Martyn Burke?
Listen in to this episode of the podcast to hear about two films from
this Canadian director that we only recently found out about. We start
off with 1981's The Last Chase which stars the Six Million Dollar Man himself, Lee Majors.
This tells the story of a future where individual transportation has
been outlawed and a former racing car driver decides to make a break for
the safety of "Free California". The second film we look at is 1978's Power Play
which, at the time of the recording, was available entirely on Youtube
but which seems to have been removed now. Please excuse our constant
mentioning of how it was so easy to watch for free...Trust us, it's
worth the money or effort that would be required to see it, no matter
what. This film has a truly stellar cast, headlined by David Hemmings, Peter O'Toole, Barry Morse and the always impressive Donald Pleasence. The plot centers around the attempt by a group of military men to instigate a Coup d'etat.
The story is tightly paced, brilliantly written, and delivers on every
level. Please let us know what you thought by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or by leaving us a message on our Facebook page.
